Feedbacks between a non-Newtonian upper mantle, mantle viscosity structure and mantle dynamics
Previous studies have shown that a low viscosity upper mantle can impact the wavelength of mantle flow and the balance of plate driving to resisting forces. Those studies assumed that mantleExpand
Plate tectonics: What, where, why, and when?
Abstract The theory of plate tectonics is widely accepted by scientists and provides a robust framework with which to describe and predict the behavior of Earth’s rigid outer shell – the lithosphereExpand
The effect of hydrous mineral content on competitive strain localization mechanisms in felsic granulites
Abstract This study investigates the grain-scale mechanisms that facilitated strain localization in the lower crust within the East Athabasca Mylonite Triangle of northern Saskatchewan, Canada.Expand
Mantle Convection
A wide range of geophysical and geochemical observations pertaining to convection in the earth's mantle and the dynamics of the tectonic plates is discussed. It is inferred that the dominant mode ofExpand
